ways consequential? then if you look at delhi, it is an amazing and -- it is a very odd city in terms of its development. it is engaged in what you might call high modernism, with a city that is growing into the sea and sky with artificial islands and also high-rises. but it is also a city where you have relatively little urban tradition. and the urban tradition that is that they are a state directed and it is an urban tradition where the government deliberately tries to create a sort of parity. so the questions that i have for myself or to what extent does all of this mean, and how blasting as this? is it something that is fleeting and we have countries that have long shape the region. the more i studied this, the more i realized a couple of things. i realized that qatar is a success story. it is not unqualified success, but in many ways it is a success story, and that's where it needs to be told. i also realized that there is a series of developments and factors that have converged at the same time to resolve in what might be called qatar's moment in history and that is what is curr

message within the city of rome, then rather than using a piece of papyrus, you might use a wax tablet which was reusable. it was a wooden frame, and it had wax in the middle, and you would scratch your message using a stylus, and then you would send this message by messenger across the city, and the recipient would write tear answer underneath, and it would be brought back to you. and cicero refers to this. it was sort of roman texting, and it was also used as a note pad, and people looked to write using these things. they're exactly the same size and shape as a modern ipad. there's even a one-inch-wide frame around the outside. and there was also an example of roman murals where people were depicted holding what looked like, frankly, smartphones. and because they're using these very small wax tablets as notebooks, so it's one of these other unexpected connections between the way we do things today and the way the romans did it 2,000 years ago. >> host: and tom standage, you talk about the fact that the romans had their own lol. >> guest: they sure did. quite. they used abbreviations
